Over the course of his career, he has recorded two original albums and worked in almost every corner of the NYC music world. His primary instrument is guitar, but while working in the pits he has picked up nearly every instrument in the strings family. In addition to juggling gigs, he teaches a lot, both privately and in the public schools. A long-time athlete and coach in karate, marathon running, and gymnastics, Ayodele has retired from competition but still hits the gym every week to stay in shape.
